Having booked five rooms for a two night stay we were really pleased with each of them. There was a handy guest lounge which was really suited to our needs allowing for us all to get together during the evening. Breakfast was lovely with a fantastic choice cooked to order. Would gladly return and may well do so next year.

The room was on the ground floor and very comfortable, breakfast was cooked to order and very nice. The owners and the housemaid were very friendly and helpful with directions ect.

A most enjoyable stay in Harrogate made even more perfect by our stay at The Fountains Guest House. Our room was exceptionally comfortable. The breakfast on both days was amazing. Within easy walking distance of all of Harrogate's outstanding attractions.

We were exhibiting at the Harrogate bridal trade show and I can not recommend this guesthouse enough. The room was excellent the food was excellent and the staff, well the staff have customer service at the top of their list, so more than excellent. We will defiantly book here again when visiting Harrogate.
